We are committed to the highest standard of donor care. We treat all complaints with the utmost seriousness and endeavour to respond politely and promptly. We are committed to learn from any feedback we receive from the general public and our supporters.
If you have a complaint about any aspect of our work, you can contact Cancer Care West in writing or by telephone. In the first instance, your complaint will be dealt with by a staff member who will aim to resolve the issue themselves or forward it to the most appropriate person to respond. Please give us as much information as possible and let us know in what format you would prefer us to respond to you, providing relevant contact details.
